Travis d'Arnaud expected to return to Mets next week

New York Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud is playing in games again, and is expected to return to the Mets next week. D'Arnaud played five innings in a rehab assignment on Tuesday, in which he went 1-for-3. General manager Sandy Alderson said that if all goes well on d'Arnaud's rehab assignment, which is scheduled to last through the week, he'll reunite with the team within a week's...

Collins, Alderson Continue To Guess At Mets’ Physical Ailments

Just because we’re in a world where immediate answers are demanded, it doesn’t mean Mets manager Terry Collins is obligated to improvise with one on Matt Harvey. After Harvey’s worst major league outing Saturday in Pittsburgh, without having benefit of a medical exam, Collins suggested to reporters the pitcher might have a “dead arm.’’ While this may or not be true, I’m...

Does Sandy Alderson really want Terry Collins to succeed?

As someone who has read more than two dozen books on the Kennedy Assassination it could be said that I am somewhat disposed to seeing conspiracies even where they don’t exist. One of the other sports teams I follow is the New York Jets (yes, I can really pick them). For those not familiar with their recent history here’s a quick overview. A few years ago the team’s owner...

Five Things We Learned From Sandy Alderson

Sandy Alderson is extremely happy with the Spring the Mets have had, and what he likes most is the camaraderie between the players and how they’ve invested in each other. He credits Mike Barwis and Kevin Long for some of that. He’s also very happy with the Mets record in Spring Training Alderson said that the Mets will likely go with three lefthanders in the bullpen, saying...

Heyman Blasts Claim That Alderson Revived The Mets

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports takes issue with the premise that general manager Sandy Alderson has revived the Mets as the new authorized biography Baseball Maverick claims. He is very critical of the overall positive and “saintly” portrayal of Alderson by former A’s beat writer Steve Kettmann who say’s Sandy’s one flaw is that he’s too competitive. “Maybe the book’s...

Sandy Alderson and the 'revived' Mets

There's a new book called: "Baseball Maverick: How Sandy Alderson Revolutionized Baseball and Revived the Mets." Apparently, Alderson has revolutionized the concept of "reviving" as well. When he took over as general manager after the 2010 season, the Mets had just finished 79-83 with an attendance of 2,559,738, eighth best in the National League. In 2014, the "revived" Mets finished...

Today Sandy Alderson clarified comments he made in his upcoming biography “Baseball Maverick” (Anthony DiComo). Alderson minimized the impact of the Mets financial woes saying that it has never been a problem for him during his tenure as Mets General Manager. “Some people want to interpret the last four years strictly in terms of what financial resources were available or...

New York Mets: the Ian Desmond trade edition

Acquiring a shortstop for the 2015 season has been an ongoing issue for the New York Mets this offseason. General manager Sandy Alderson has kept the team on a shoestring budget for some time, which for NY Sports fans, is extremely frustrating because the Mets could be a threat for the post season with the addition of a competitive shortstop. Right now Wilmer Flores looks to be...

Sandy Alderson’s future Mets position players

The Mets are on the verge of contention, and with the mix of veterans and youth on the 40-man roster there could be some playoff baseball in Queens 2015. However, we are not here to discuss 2015-but the future of Queens. Criticism aside, Sandy Alderson has formed an extremely balanced farm system by acquiring players in trades and the MLB draft. While much of these players are pitchers...

New York Mets free agent projections: starters

Earlier this week I analyzed the New York Mets’ needs in the bullpen. Now I’ll stick with pitching but move into the starting rotation. As it so happens the Mets are very deep at starter going into 2015. Much of the rotation is young and under team control and the one wily, old veteran, Bartolo Colon, has one more year and $11 million left on his contract. As a result of controlling...
